The Great Cities Collaborative has issued an RFP for consultants.
The organizations listed above have received funding from the McKnight Foundation to explore the possibility of creating Business Improvement Districts (BID) and/or Parking Improvement Districts (PID) along the five commercial corridors they represent in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Each organization will need to prepare and circulate information about the advantages and disadvantages of BIDs and PIDs, and will function as a catalyst and resource engaging property owners and stakeholders in an informed conversation about the benefits of creating this model of cooperative management along the commercial corridors.
This is open until February 15, 2012.
